Can you believe that it has been exactly one whole year today since I worked up enough courage (& bikinis) to set up at our very first farmer's market?! I can't decide if I feel like it's been longer or shorter than a year but I do know that it has been such a freakin adventure!
This last year has been filled with such positive vibes & lots of love for my small business!
I really can't believe how far Coco Kini has come in such a short amount of time. At this time last year I was making a few sales here & there & it was mostly just a hobby. I didn't have all the time in the world to dedicate to Coco kini but I sure did stay up late every night just making bikinis because I wanted to. During the winter I really had to put all of my energy & attention into my embroidery business & kind of left coco kini on the back burner. I didn't really think that it would grow the way it has & honestly I think I kind of lost sight of my goal.
Then January came around & I decided to get back on the sewing machine. I ordered some pretty fabrics & I started putting a ton of time into bikinis. I became obsessed. Actually, obsessed is an understatement.
At this point I think it became apparent where my heart was.
It took a while to convince myself that I was ready to reopen the shop but I eventually did. With the help of you guys of course!
Well until I realized just how difficult it was to run 2 businesses on my own. I was seriously in over my head.
I knew I was going to have to give something up. But I wasn't going to settle on that because I wanted both!
I took a leap of faith & asked my former assistant to take over the operations for LPE so I could focus on Coco Kini.
No that's not dramatic. It was THAT exciting!! It's only been a few months since I gained the opportunity to put every waking minute into Coco Kini but it was the best adult decision that I've made yet! I am having the absolute time of my life & seeing how far I've come in just one year makes me so excited to see what this next year will bring.โฃ๏ธโฃ๏ธ (My novel is so long I have to post the rest in the comments)

I had been eyeing these 2 fabrics for a while! This last time I ordered fabric I finally decided to give them a try & I'm so glad that I did ๐Ÿ˜
You'll be able to find these fabrics for the first time ever at the June 8th Island Farmer's Market!
Which one is your favorite?!

Hey pretties!
I wanted to make some announcements before this week starts!
The first & most important is that the shop is closing TONIGHT at midnight!
I'm waaay past the amount of orders I would've usually taken but I'm feeling pretty good about it! I'm working as fast as I can to get everything out in a timely manner! Please remember that the turn around time is 2-4 weeks from the date you ordered! I can't respond to every single email about when your order is going to ship, this is why I ask that you read FAQ's & are familiar with the turn around time before placing an order! It's so important!
The reason I am closing is so that I can finish all of your pretty orders & get to work on pieces for the June 8th Island Farmer's Market & Art Market!! I will give more info on that as the date gets closer but I know it will be great & I'm SO excited!! SO if you want to get an order in before the website closes then do it now! I don't have a set re opening date so now is the time to stock up for summer! ๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒž I'm so stoked for a summer filled with beautiful bikini's! โฃ๏ธ
Thanks for being the best customers EVER!!!
